ABSTRACT

Splenic marginal zone lymphoma (SMZL), a rare sub-type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) presents with abdominal discomfort, lymphocytosis, cytopenias along with B symptoms including fatigue, night sweats, night fevers, weight loss. NHLs rarely present with paraneoplastic neurological syndromes like Guillain-Barre (GB) syndrome, myelopathy causing paraplegia, chorea, neuromyotonia, vasculitic neuropathy and dermatomyositis. Here, we present a 85-year old caucasian lady presenting with GB syndrome


and Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuretic Hormone (SIADH) who eventually got diagnosed with SMZL.
